An increasing number of scrapie cases with atypical characteristics, designated Nor98, have recently been recognized. Here, the proteinase K (PK)-resistant prion protein (PrP) fragments from two Swedish cases of Nor98 atypical scrapie have been characterized. The prominent, fast-migrating band in the distinct Nor98 Western immunoblot electrophoretic profile(More)
This European Community Biomedicine and Health Research-supported, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial investigated the effect of an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I) in children and young people with IgA nephropathy (IgAN), moderate proteinuria (>1 and <3.5 g/d per 1.73 m(2)) and creatinine clearance (CrCl) >50(More)
In order to study persistence of the porcine rubulavirus LPMV, we examined tissue samples collected from pigs 53 days after experimental infection. These pigs survived the initial infection and could clinically be considered to have recovered from the infection. Two of the pigs used in this study were chemically immunosuppressed during the last 4 days(More)
The virus-coded 72000-Mr DNA-binding protein from adenovirus-type-2-infected cells has been purified to homogeneity by DEAE-cellulose chromatography, selective precipitation and gel filtration. The 72000-Mr DNA-binding protein is phosphorylated and the phosphate is covalently linked predominantly to serine. Analysis of tryptic digests of the 32P-labeled(More)
The nucleotide sequence of the P gene of the porcine paramyxovirus La-Piedad-Michoacan-Mexico virus (LPMV) was analysed. Three long open reading frames (ORFs) were found in the mRNA sense. Insertion of two G residues is necessary to obtain an ORF encoding the P protein, which gives a P protein of 404 amino acids with a calculated Mr of 42475. This form of(More)
The complete nucleotide sequence of the gene encoding the matrix protein (M) of the porcine paramyxovirus LPMV has been determined. The gene is 1376 nucleotides long including 5' and 3' non-coding sequences with a protein-coding sequence of 1107 nucleotides. The deduced protein, containing 369 amino acids with a calculated Mr of 41,657, is hydrophobic(More)
Protein and genomic studies of a previously uncharacterized porcine paramyxovirus (designated LPMV) confirmed that it was a member of the paramyxovirus genus. The nucleotide sequences and deduced amino acids of the complete P-gene, M-gene, F-gene and HN-gene as well as the intergenic sequences have been determined. Comparative sequence analysis of the(More)
La Piedad Michoacan Paramyxovirus (LPMV) is a recently recognized paramyxovirus infecting pigs throughout Mexico. Disease syndromes observed in field cases associated with LPMV infection include neurologic, respiratory, and reproductive disorders. Clinical signs and the distribution of LPMV virus and antigen in tissue samples from pigs experimentally(More)
Porcine rubulavirus (LPMV) can establish persistent infections in porcine kidney cells. Cell cultures characterised at passages 25 and 65 demonstrated haemadsorption, formation of syncytia, and a slower growth rate. The nucleoprotein (NP) and haemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) protein were present in all cells, although not to the same extent as in wild type(More)
